People Are Trolling CNN For Not Including Any Women In Its "Future Of Media" Cover Story

"I mean, to be fair, I do believe the future of media looks like a bunch of self-satisfied dudes staring at me."

This month's issue of the Hollywood Reporter features an article called "CNN's New War," discussing what the author calls the network's "battle for news dominance."

Twitter

The cover features CNN president Jeff Zucker and other personalities like anchor Jake Tapper and Anthony Bourdain.

It also features a nice zing at BuzzFeed News, quoting Zucker saying "we don't do cat videos."

CNN producer Josiah Daniel Ryan was so pleased with the cover, he shared it on his Twitter account. "The future of media looks like this," he wrote.

The future of media looks like this. Proud to be part of this team. @CaseyNeistat @Bourdain @jaketapper… https://t.co/3HRRMcpFwA

However, his tweet soon went viral because of one tiny thing. Where are all the women?

The future of media is mostly white men and no women at all https://t.co/UPCu6mRi1c

So, are there no women in the future of media?

I guess the future of media isn't female. https://t.co/nAh5pqmu1m

"I mean, to be fair, I do believe the future of media looks like a bunch of self-satisfied dudes staring at me," one woman wrote.
